It's hard to believe that after months of construction at our Wilmar Drive Project, the time has come to share it with all of you. We couldn't be more thrilled to reveal this home, introduce the amazing tradesman and vendors behind the project, and chat all the fun details! Yesterday we shared the Living Room + Entryway. Today, we're revealing three more spaces on the main floor: The Mudroom, Laundry Room + Powder Bath.
The mudroom is one of my favorite spaces out of this entire renovation. Mostly because it didn't exist originally. There was a small landing off the kitchen that had a small storage closet, a door to the back yard and garage access. The garage had unused space so the team decided to frame a portion of it off, demo the storage closet wall, and create one very adorable, albeit narrow, mudroom. In order to make the room feel bigger than it was, we added vertical paneling to the walls and had the herringbone pattern slate tile floors installed long ways. Additional storage was custom-built to nestle itself at . If you look closely, we used the same trim detailing as the kitchen island. Finally, the space was made complete by our friends at Penn Rustics, who collaborated with us on the cutest custom-made wooden bench.
Ready for this?! The team created the laundry room from unused space too. As explained in our blog post revealing part one of this project, the original kitchen took up the entire length (front to back) of one side of the house. At the front of it was a built-in office nook. The team demo'd that and installed framing right down the middle of the house to create three separate spaces: the kitchen, pantry, and laundry room. We continued the herringbone black slate tile from the mudroom (since we were able to connect the two) into the laundry space, added a pop of color to our custom cabinetry, and gave the bay window a much needed makeover. Finally, if you look closely, there's a fun wallpapered backsplash above the utilities.
Speaking of wallpaper, we had some hung in the newly remodeled powder bath as well. Can you tell we have a slight crush on simple, classic patterned papers? In addition, we had decorative wainscoting installed to add dimension to the space. All of the plumbing was replaced. Because the space is so small, we opted for a pedestal sink rather than a regular sized vanity. One of my favorite shots by our photographer Tyler is the straight on shot of the space from the hallway. The cutest peek into the cutest powder bath.
We're revealing our Wilmar Drive Project all week. Tune in tomorrow as we share Part Four: The Master Suite.
